Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) and the Institute of Technology Tralee (ITT) have submitted a formal application to the Minister for Education and Skills to seek designation as the Munster Technological University (MTU).

The application will be considered in accordance with criteria established under the Technological Universities Act 2018.  The HEA will now invite an independent expert international advisory panel to evaluate the application including site visits to Cork and Tralee and meeting with relevant stakeholder groups. The HEA will then consider the advisory panel’s report and make a recommendation to the Minister for Education and Skills, who will then take the final decision on designation. This decision is likely to be made in the second quarter of 2019.
